Costa Rican Rescue Home Mission - Missionary Opening


Costa Rican Rescue Home Mission - Missionary Opening
NEEDED!

A heart for the hurting and those in need of intervention and/or assistance in their next step in life!

Palmas de Mamre is affiliated with a new project, a hostel rescue mission located in Northern Costa Rica. We need a director for this ministry specifically aimed at women and children escaping from life threatening situations in need of intervention and shelter.  It is not a shelter for problem adolescents, or rehabilitation from drugs and/or alcohol.

There is a vital need for someone, preferably a well-grounded couple, who can counsel, teach Bible Studies, and help the refugees get training in skills/vocational work experience. The goal being helping them make a living that is relevant to their location, availability of resources and avenues to be utilized.  Of course, these missionaries would need to have at least a good understanding of Spanish.




The project is ready now that the physical structures have been completed. This is a nice home, for the area, with a separate wood stove kitchen outside, tree house, and a separate home for the director/administrator."

Missionary - Teacher - Administrator - Opening


Palmas de Mamre has been working for about a year with a village down the San Juan de Norte River doing some medical outreach and holding almost weekly children's programs and adult services.  The people are very receptive to the gospel and several have made commitments to the Lord.

The river forms the Costa Rican/Nicaraguan border; and the village is located on the Costa Rican side.  It is quite isolated and therefore has no public school.  

A couple years ago there was a little school across the river on the Nicaraguan side, but it no longer exists. While the school was open, the children paddled across and attended school for maybe half a year, getting some basic education. They are very astute and attentive to the lessons we bring, and are wanting their own school and more Bible studies.  

WE NEED A TEACHER AND ADMINISTRATOR OF THIS PROJECT.  For several reasons a married couple would work the best for this mission and project.  We are not requiring a certified teacher, but an individual with the desire and ability to teach basic reading, writing, math and Bible studies. As soon as we have the right teacher committed, we can work out the details of setting up the school and teacher housing.

Among the donors for the school, we have been blessed with a well-known artist in New Mexico who sells her paintings and gives most of the profits to one of three charities, including this school!
